Our solid state Infra Red lights are excellent for use with compatible security cameras or as a supplement for extra IR illumination with cameras that already have built in IR lights. But these lamps are also frequently used for other things such as natural user interfaces, research projects and even for artistic creations. Here you can see an example of our IR lamps used in an interactive art project.
In this short video, artist and student team Will Donohoe, Billy Bogiatzoglou and Ashley Gale create an interactive art piece using Camsecure cameras with built in IR light.
It was designed for Animated Exeter in 2011 and was projected onto Exeter Cathedral (UK).
The fireflies projected on the Cathedral get attracted to the architectural details of the arch on the west wing to form the pattern.
An Infra red camera was used to track people as they walked past, as the audience interacted with the project, the fireflies left their positions and followed the position of the audience
